Page 53: A handspun silk tuxedo scarf published in Spring 2002 Spin-Off magazine. This is the only weave in the book that I did not make on a rigid-heddle loom. It is an 8-shaft pattern created from a snippet of Lush Life by Billy Strayhorn as arranged by John Coltrane. You can roughly translate music into weaving drafts, similar to name drafts.
